Gin the OIlaHH of 1910 

WITH the publication of this book the Class of 19 19 says the first 
words of her formal farewell to the College. Here she has 
summed up her four years' record of mythology and history ; here 
she has named her friends and counted over her own daughters. Happy 
weeks at College still remain for the class before the day of their gradua- 
tion, but with the appearance of the Microcosm that day defines itself 
clearly in the near distance. It is the time for anyone with preacher's 
blood in her veins to begin to moralize ! 

What can the graduates of older generations say to the girls who are 
this year leaving college? Until five years ago the Seniors passed out 
from a familiar, orderly round of work and vacation into what seems in 
retrospect a familiar and orderly world. They took up their share of the 
responsibilities which had been gradually passed over to women, and filled 
the limited places in the professions and in business left vacant for them 
by men. Here and there some gifted woman broke a new path and 
travelled farther. Their numbers steadily increased and their energy 
made itself felt more and more widely. But speaking largely, the problem 
of their work and their place in society had not fundamentally changed in 
twenty years and the advice of Commencement orators and baccalaureate 
preachers continued its cheerful monotony. The Young Woman must go 
out from the college gates bearing in her hands the special womanly gifts 
of refinement and of service. Suddenly in August, 19 14, all the familiar 
conditions changed. Old needs multiplied and countless new needs were 
added. Old means proved inadequate to reach their ends and the old 
ends were themselves rapidly lost sight of. The world demanded a new 
response to its new conditions. 

You are tired of hearing that you are going out into a new world — 
but we do not tire of saying it because it is a world which is also new to us. 
This world makes more ringing demands upon you than those which we 
listened to on the old Commencement Days. You must give expert service 
with honest and clear thought guiding it, faith that can move mountains, in- 
dependence and respect for the independence of others, responsibility not 
only for family or home but for other families or homes, for the nation 
and the family of nations. Truly you are to "bear the blast of a tremendous 

T Pi IS .'.M I C RX> COS K/f 

l v -i 

time." No one will follow you so closely as the older generations of col- 
lege women. No one knows so well as we that the tools you have acquired 
in these four years will prove adequate sometimes but often clumsy and old- 
fashioned. No one is so confident as we that in these same four years 
you have acquired a something which will make it possible to work with 
clumsy tools where that is necessary, to invent new ones, to work with bare 
hands if all else fails, to give mind and soul and heart and strength because 
you are determined to contribute the whole of your tiny share to the great 
result. On your side, remember that we are envious only of the fresh 
strength you bring, that we are working everywhere beside you and welcom- 
ing you to the task that you are bound to enter on.

"A nature wise 
With finding in itself the types of all — 
Wise with the history of its own frail heart, 
With reverence and sorrow, and with love 
Broad as the world, for freedom and for man." 

Miss Park 

"The love of moral beauty, and that retention of the spirit 
of youth, which is implied by the indulgence of a poetical 
taste, are evidences of good disposition in any man, and argue 
well for largeness of mind in other respects."

"Life is not so short but that there is always time for courtesy. 
Self-command is the main elegance."

''Nothing has such power to broaden the mind as the abilitv 
to investigate systematically and truly all that comes under 
thy observation in life.'' 






Marion Delight Alcott 

"For me Fate gave, iv/iate'er else slie denied, 
A nature sloping to the southern side." 

No matter what you want done, ask Marion to do it, and 
she'll be willing. Sell tickets or books; go out for hockey or 
track ; come to song rallies innumerable ; take subscriptions and 
class dues, — anything and everything in the way of an odd job 
she shoulders as if she really enjoyed it. And then, after all 
that you've asked her to do is done, 

"She doeth little kindnesses 
Which most leave undone, or despise."

Martha Anderson 

"Give me liberty, or give me death" 

When the arms of Labor finally cast off their shackles, and 
Capital is overturned from its seat on the moneybags, Martha 
will ride triumphant at the head of processions, and sway mul- 
titudes by her slightest word. History will know her as the 
Great-aunt of the Revolution. If you have a Cause — and it is 
very radical — bring it to Martha and she will be its champion. 
She never fails, be it Internationalism or the I. and R. We 
shall proudly claim her as a member of 1919 when she is elected 
Premier of the Socialist Government.

"Class spirit" is capable of a number of interpretations. When 
it means meeting one's personal troubles — the big ones — bravely 
and squarely, and unselfishly putting them aside in the interests 
of others, then it also means to us, who have seen the thing 
become something more than a theory — it means Marion

There's probably no class that bursts into song oftener or at 
shorter notice than 1919; and yet there's probably no class who 
has fewer real singers. But you see the quality varies inversely 
with the number ; and though they be few, they be fine ! And 
so that is why we say with feeling to those few, like Ruth,, 
who really can sing and sing well,

"I had a hat. It was not all a hat, — 
Part of the brim was gone; 
Yet still I wore it on." — Unknown 

To be truly attached to a great Cause is to be willing to do- 
desperate deeds for its sake; that's why gentle suffragettes hurl 
hammers, and meek Anarchists light bombs! Helen has given 
weeks of faithful work to the Red Cross; not content with that, 
she willingly underwent the most dreadful martyrdom a femi- 
nine mind could conceive of, to win money for her beloved 
Cause — she wore a hideous hat to church one Sunday on a bet, 
a hat that might have been designed, not by a milliner, but by 
a civil engineer ! Greater love hath no girl, than she lay aside- 
her vanity for a purpose!

this year has been to fill Library B to overflowing, in 
order to exhibit her Celebrities. And such Celebrities as 
she has produced for us! How she has secured them we 
know not, no one else has ever succeeded in doing so, but we 
suspect a judicious use of that fascinating Russian accent of 
hers. She may become so intimate with Famous Persons that 
she will turn into a Celebrity herself, or we may hear of her 
in far-off Patagonia instilling the principles of initiative and 
referendum into the native tribes. But whatever her goal, 
this much we know : Gertrude will reach it, for in her heart 
flares "that divine restlessness called ambition."

And everywhere that Jeannie went

Our Jeanne certainly loves her cataloguing and history of 
libraries; she has realized, as President of Dorm. Government, 
that camouflage is the successful art of "making what is look 
like what ain't," and has assumed a rigid dignity accordingly; 
she gives misdemeanors in the most ruthless manner . . . but let 
the gentle strains of "Hindustan" waft out from the Refectory, 
and a fitting partner be at hand, and cataloguing, libraries, 
dormitories and misdemeanors are straightway things of the 
past, forgotten in the doings of the moment!

"Out . . . out are the lights . . . out all!" 
Responsible people who become suddenly irresponsible are as

erstwhile happy-go-lucky Blanche into a Demon Proctor this 
year, which Second Floor South still regards in the light of a 
bad dream, is illustration enough of this. Outside of that tem- 
porary aberration — due perhaps to the habits formed during 
rehearsals of "irate parent" roles in Dramatics — Blanche is the 
most cheerful of mortals. She may hide her battery of smiles 
behind a fusillade of groans but the camouflage is unsuccessful. 
A year or so may see her as "story-telling" librarian in some 
Children's Room; let us hope for the little dears' sake that she 
does not let her imagination out to its fullest extent! It is so 
vivid !

Ruth Chapman 

Rumor hath it that, in her first few days at Simmons, Ruth 
caught sight of the inspiring, if futile, motto that hangs in Miss 
Diall's office — you know, the one about "her voice was ever 
soft and low"- — and was so impressed that she has never re- 
covered since. The man who wrote that motto would have 
been proud of Ruth. Underneath the Seven Veils of Silence 
in which she has chosen to wrap herself, we suspect that there 
is enough brain-power and common sense to put some of our 
more talkative members to shame. Some time Ruth may hold 
forth — may there be a dictograph record preserved for 1919!

"Never retract; never explain; get it done and let them howl" 
A famous personage at Oxford formulated this code of action ; 
a famous personage of 1919 has been living up to it ever since. 
Supreme indifference to the opinion of the rank and file — that's 
characteristic of M. E. To write of her different activities 
would tax the pen of a Boswell and the printing space of Mic; 
sufficient be it to mention their variety. Here is some one who 
can lead the intellectuals of the Academy, take "star" roles in 
all Dramatics, hold down a hockey-goal now and then (by a 
peculiar sedentary method of guarding) and — oh thorn amidst 
the laurel leaves! — undertake the Herculean task of editing Mic. 
We pause for breath ! Yet great minds will have their little 
weaknesses. M. E. cherishes the fond delusion that she has a 
bird-like tone; she places herself conspicuously in the front row 
at step-singing. Dot McKissick, torn between love and duty, is 
unable to relegate her to the rear — she sings on vociferously!

Once upon a time a certain man named Dumas wrote about

plain the trio of which Irene is a member — the Allison, Duff 
and Everett combination. The Three Musketeers were no 
less devoted and inseparable than these. They are now look-

chat; Misses Allison and Duff the good cheer. In odd mo-

Just the same, we'd be willing to back a wager that you 
could never catch her off her guard, for she is permanently 
equipped with "shock-absorbers." If anybody will give us a 
guaranteed genuine "line" on Fishie, we shall owe her a debt 
of gratitude. We believe that even the omniscient Faculty

"Give me the keys. I feel for the common chord again, 

Sliding by semi-tones till I sing to the minor " 

"There is a class that's got a champion in everything!" 
Let Fitchie lay her hands on anything from a typewriter to a 
piano and she'll turn out a prize. Writing the music for prize 
songs got to be a habit with her just as soon as she arrived 
here. What she does to an inanimate typewriter, once let her 
attack it, is indescribably hideous to us of the thirty-word 
speed ; to watch her turn off page after page at seventy-five 
words a minute, with the careless composure of Cleopatra poi- 
soning her slaves, makes our hearts bleed! Listing accom- 
plishments is a futile pastime, but this much we cannot forbear: 
The speed laws for autos are useless at best, 
Fitchie just escaped breaking her neck — 
We suppress painful details by special request, 
But the hen was a terrible wreck!

Hap has one of those dispositions you read about in books, 
but rarely encounter; one of the "she comes up smiling" kind. 
Ten minutes exposure to it, and you unconsciously remove the 
expression of profound gloom from your own face, and replace 
with a feeble imitation of Hap's Sanitol smile. When step- 
singing comes 'round, and 1919 begins to contemplate soulful 
and harmonic serenades, the first preliminary consists in getting 
Hap to lend her voice, which is as pleasing as her personality, 
to act as ballast for the intricacies of the tenor parts.

To get the orchestra into such a state of momentary exalta- 
tion that it can play something more strenuous than "light 
gems from comic operas"; to make the Red Cross mean some- 
thing tangible and active at Simmons; to take the first boat to 
France after Commencement — these three aims have absorbed 
all of Alice's time and a great deal of her concentration. So 
much for aims; now for results! The orchestra goes up in the 
scale with each week's practice under her leadership (subtle 
joke here!) ; the Red Cross has claimed hour after hour of her 
free time; and as for the flight to France — some day you'll be

of wielding the racquet, is her diffidence when receiving plaudits 
of her classmates. To see a vivid representation of a startled

her usual "S-a-a-a-y," accompanied by an ear-to-ear grin. Tell 
her the latest joke — on herself — and the grin will be a few inches 
wider, if possible. It is this quality of rare good humor and 
sympathy that has made her so universally popular, especially 
among the under-classes, ever on the lookout for a Senior 
whose sense of the ridiculous has not been permanently petri- 
fied. In Dramatics she has been exceptionally successful espe- 
cially in the demure and coquettish ingenue roles; her most 
characteristic role, however, is that of the hesitant heroine in 
the stirring Confederate drama, "The Surrender of Lee."

Katharine Mason Hall 

"Secret and self-contained and solitary as an oyster" 

Beyond the aloofness which it implies, the simile applies no 
further, for an oyster, ensconced in its shell, gives not a thought 
to the world outside, while K., behind hers, gives many a 
thought to the world outside, the college world most of all. 
What she thinks of us all is a mystery hidden away behind the 
bone rims of her glasses ; but a hint of mystery in the midst of 
much obviousness is rather interesting, and then there is a 
subtle distinction in being able to enact the role of Class Sphinx.

Mary is about the size of a very brief minute. If the Society

of her at her characteristic pastime — poring over German 
Berichtes in Library B — there would be a stirring appeal to the 
authorities that she be allowed to go out and play. This fragile 
being, though, has an amount of gray matter, which, if spread 
a bit thinner, and made to go around among a few more girls, 
might materially raise the academic standard of '19.

art of making numberless friends (inside the lines, and out- 
side), and keeping them all in a superlatively happy frame of 
mind. For four years she has played "comic relief" to Jean's 
calm dignity; Summer School, however, discovered to her a 
fellow jester in Edith McConnell, and between them they formed 
the remarkable combination, The Commercial Comediennes, 
which was "something between a hindrance and a help" to the 
rest of the summer-ing ones. She may study; she must study, 
to have left us in February; but no one has been able to collect

could not exist apart; we cannot determine, but they were in- 
separable all summer. She may have gotten to know, as they 
say, "another side to its nature." At any rate, such consistent 
devotion is irrefutable proof of Bessie's unchanging optimism 
and cast-iron good nature, for if she could keep her temper 
with the slide-rule, behold ! there is naught in heaven or earth

"Some must be great. Great offices will have great 
talents." — Cowper 

It is not the easiest thing in the world to be continually on 
public inspection, and to act as a sort of axle upon which the 
myriad wheels of college affairs may revolve, more or less 
smoothly. 1919 is justly proud of the manner in which Carita 
has represented, not only the College in general, but her own 
class in particular. Without aspiring to oracular utterance, 
we venture to prophesy that, in the days to come, when in the 
councils of diplomats there is accorded a seat to woman, Carita 
will be exerting her diplomatic powers upon international 
problems with the same success that she has achieved in the less 
important, but no less troublesome, problems of college life.

Naturally, to one blessed — or cursed — with that price of gen- 
ius, a temperament, Lib. Meth. does not offer alluring pros-

temperament, and inspiration. Anything bearing the hallmark 
of routine or method sends her into a coma; she goes "under 
a cloud," and becomes "blue; darkly, deeply, beautifully blue." 
But let her get her mind on an idea or her fingers on a piano, 
and the temperamental element emerges from its dormant state. 
Remove the temper; encourage the mental ; eeee inspiration ! 
She has the English language absolutely under her heel; at 
her command it twists itself into the most amazing knots, the i 
straightens out and marches in parade review, adorned with 
laces, frills, and every other decoration. There might have 
been a Mic this year without her — we can't conceive it — but

1919 has never, even in Freshman days, shown evidence of 
lacking a "self-starter" attachment. But if it had we should 
have always had Dot to rely on, to "start" things going. Out 
of innumerable hopeless dress-rehearsals, she has evolved par- 
ties that will go down in College History to 19's credit. Out of 
a group of untrained singers — apologies to the Glee Club mem- 
bers — she has made of us a Class which can burst gracefully 
into appropriate song, no matter what the occasion. This last 
is perhaps due to her unique method of leading — three claps 
of the hands, and the left foot raised nonchalantly to the rear. 
Her success as President is too obvious for comment. Her suc- 
cess as a classmate, when brought down to cold statistics, shows 
her to be our most popular girl. Vet, with all her successes, 
there have been reefs !

Evelyn Agnes McNeil 

"A laugh is worth a hundred groans in any market" 
And the best of it is that Evelyn has a sense of humor that 
is not merely exclusive, but inclusive; a joke shared, in her 
opinion, is worth two jokes kept to oneself. Evelyn is the sort 
of happy-go-lucky being, who'd have the calm sense to turn 
on the fire-extinguisher in the midst of a blaze, and then 
carefully rescue her tooth-paste! If we tried to take a balance 
of Evelyn's sense and her nonsense, we'd call the result a hy- 
brid mixture and name it "good-nature."

Adelaide F. Mason 

"Serene amidst alarms" 

It is rather impossible to imagine Adelaide in a fine state of 
frenzy or even a nice lukewarm state of excitement. Exams — 
inter-class contests — the hair-raising suspense of taking an "un- 
known quantity" to a Glee Club dance — all these things which 
would draw a gasp from the most stolid of us, fail to arouse 
her from her calm acceptance of affairs in general. Admiring, 
even envious, are we of the scattered emotions; to be able to 
accomplish results as she does, without becoming heated, is a 
rare art in itself.

"She knows her man, and when you rant and swear, 
Can draw you to her with a single hair." 

Vera is our Exhibit A in refutation of the popular fallacy 
that the term "Simmons Senior" is synonymous with "Sedate 
Student." Here we have a beautiful blonde being who keeps 
her engagement book on the double-entry system, wears her frat 
pins like so many Croix des Guerres, and eagerly answers the 
Saturday-afternoon call of the strident saxophone at the Copley- 
Plaza. To balance the scale between Faculty and frivolity, 
she does brilliant classwork and is an exceedingly promising 
dietician. Does any misguided person wish to continue the 
debate ?

Alice Elizabeth; Moore 

Alice's two very large and childlike blue eyes, which have in 
them a perpetual "I-hear-the-angels-singing" expression, give 
her a most unfair advantage at times. As manager of the 
showcase, her seraphic look has been one of her "fixed assets." 
Under its influence you are liable to find yourself coming away 
from the showcase clutching a combination fish-fork and can- 
opener, which you know very well you haven't the slightest 
use for. And in class it would be a hardened instructor indeed 
who, on discovering that rapt gaze in the front row, would fail 
to contribute to Alice's P.G. card this recommendation, "Nice 
girl, Miss Moore; always appreciates a good lecture!"

"Ah, you flavour everything ; you are the vanilla of society" 

It would seem as though Vivian had more than should fall 
to the share of one mortal maiden; not only is she the owner 
of a magnetic smile which in itself is sufficient to win the 
degree of B.S. (Beauteous Siren), but she has the clothes to 
supply a fitting background for such a smile. Clothes that were 
never planned, but just evolved, clothes that might have been 
stripped from the cover of this month's Vogue; they lend an 
indescribable tone to every occasion from breakfast to Glee 
Club concert.

Margaret E. Moriarity 


The Human Interrogation Mark! How she succeeds in 
thinking of so many and such ingenious questions, and how 
she expects to tind anyone sufficiently encyclopedic to be able to 
answer them for her, is beyond us. The moss-covered proverb 
which says that "Whistling girls and crowing hens are sure to 
come to some bad end!" seems to hold no terrors for her, since 
her presence in any classroom is distinguishable by a slow, sibi- 
lant sound that starts the instructor on an immediate investi- 
gation as to who is playing at being a little mocking-bird. Her 
convictions are as strong as the Rock of Gibraltar; her argu- 
ments in their defense like so many battering-rams!

"I rarely read any Latin, Greek, German,

That, however, is no hindrance when it comes to reporting

ness, mixed with general impressions go a great way in filling 
up the discrepancies in recitations. Besides, there's so much 
more in life than book reports!

If there's a proper method to do anything, Kay knows it 
and she uses it — not occasionally in a moment of efficient in- 
spiration — but invariably. To her goes the credit of being the 
sole member of the class who made the slightest effort towards 
putting "method" into Business Methods. Our idea of a meth- 
odical and systematic life is Kay in her wildest moments of 
frenzy and disorder. For those less quick, the explanation 
of this is that her disposition is as even as her habits are

Rosemary Sylvia Quinlan 

The worries of a Secretarial Course have rested as lightly 
on Rosemary's shoulders for four years, as the proverbial 
water on the back of the proverbial duck. Only in Junior 
Year, when nine o'clock a.m. was the hour appointed for 
the weary Secretariate in Room 128 to start inscribing a few 
more yards of Congressional Record — then, and then only, 
did a Serious Problem enter Rosemary's life. 

Problem : If the train from Natick arrives at the 
Back Bay Station at 8.50, how do I get to college in 
time to join the merry revel in 128 ? 
Solution: I don't! 
We strongly suspect that Rosemary is one keenly in favor 
of continuing the study of German in schools, despite the fact 
that she is also an ardent patriot.

"In the spring, a young maid's fancy . . ."

Not content with doing all that could be done, within

self Senior Year, a xylophone and promptly became one of 
the stars of the Simmons Travelling Troupe, which did active 
canteen service during the winter. There is only one thing more 
fascinating than listening to Nellie play and that is^ listening 
to her talk ! In the momentous matter of clothes, Nellie has al- 
ways been a yard ahead or behind the rest of us, according to 
whether skirts were being worn wide or narrow. One would 
not naturally expect to find a dressy young person with an ap- 
titude for xylophones, to be studious, but Nellie has made a 
record in classes which some of us — whose repertoires are 
limited to the "asdf" prelude of the Remington sonata — are 
decidedly envious of.

Recently we have begun to suspect that this year there exists

there has been a combination of powers. We await the Senior

be confessed.

Ernestine Rowe 


Keats' "Ode to a Grecian Urn" may hold its place among

stands waiting for her who will inscribe in verse the great 
West House epic, "Owed to a Cleveland Em." It is hard for 
those of us who see Ernie now, in the role of dignified House 
Chairman of North Hall, with a recent acquisition in the 
shape of an energetic conscience, to reconcile this phase of 
her character with the merry madness of Sophomore Year. 
Since the departure of El O'Brien, Ernie has given up the 
gentle outdoor sport of car-riding into the country — without 
the usual formalities of nickel-paying — and has taken to the 
bridle-path of the Fenway. No wild gallop, or Fenway breeze, 
however, can ruffle one hair of that exquisite blond coiffure !

Household Ec. inclination; sewing and cooking seem to be as 
much her true vocation as cataloguing. Lately she has drawn 
such a thin line of distinction between the two fields of work 
that her friends are wondering which she will run for life — a 
library or a sewing machine.

Childe Harold — a lamb, fresh from the shearing! The care- 
less ease with which Ruth chopped off her locks is character- 
istically unconventional. She is ever superbly strenuous, 
whether in exercising her physical faculties in athletics or her 
mental faculties in argumentation. And between-times, she 
endeavors to be the personification of the Cambridge ideal of 
"dashing deb"— stock-collars, flapping galoshes, mufflers, wool 
socks — and all that sort of thing.

Al O'Connor, Glad Kummer and El O'Brien recruited into its 
ranks. The vogue for midnight supper-ettes, accompanied by 
a continuous cabaret of strictly local talent, grew upon Miss 
Shute to such an extent that College became merely a place 
to drop in upon once in a blue moon. But all is changed ; 
age brings wisdom and sobriety! She has settled down to 
a quiet life in North Hall with Ernie, and prefers less violent 
forms of amusement. To see Shutie in her proper element, 
is to see her resting lightly upon the wrist of some devotee of 
the dance, in the intricate mazes of the wave. "Pretty little

Anne is Anne! One of the magnificent things she does for 
the world is to pound a typewriter. One of the lesser things 
she has done has been to win the Tennis Cup for 1919 in 
Freshman Year, a precedent that we haven't had the heart to 
break since that time. As for eating, well — where there's a 
will there's a way, and where there is food there is Anne, and 
where there is Anne there was food, but is no more. Anne is 
Anne !

Esther Stone 


Teachers, they say, are born, not made ; if the same is true 
of librarians, then Stonie was predestined. Her aptitude in that 
line is the envy of the uninitiated, to whom the Dewey System 
stands for the art of naval warfare during the Spanish War, 
and mere mention of "file" suggests a trip to the manicurist. 
Stonie, however, does not limit her interests to library science; 
she goes in very keenly for profitable research in the science of 
navigation — air and water.

Opportunity will never have a chance to bruise its knuckles 
knocking on Alice's door; at the first tap, she has always had 
the door wide open, especially when it means an opportunity to 
gain some more information on subjects Secretarial. Calmly, 
but efficiently, she has kept steadily at work, maintaining an 
unshaken composure during the strain of a routine under which 
a less persevering girl might well wilt. Two characteristics of 
hers have somewhat blocked the line of communication between 
the Class and herself; this propensity of hers to solitary study 
instead of futile frivolity, and her very unusual and Victorian

Tilly Emily Svenson 

"// you would thoroughly know anything teach it In others" 

Tilly is that vara avis, a Secretarial Senior whose idea of a 
vocation is to go out and tell the world what the Success System 
has meant to her, via the classroom method. Not content to 
wait until June to share the sweet secret, she got a headstart on 
us all by means of a Summer School course and a midwinter 
graduation. To think of her as an earnest prophet of "pet 
hooks" is beyond us for the time being; we prefer to think of 
her as the Tilly of former less strenuous, but mighty pleasant 
days — captaining the basketball team, twanging a tune or two 
on the mandolin, and taking life nonchalantly.

In a smile there's power to cure that most dreadsome and 
frequent college epidemic — glooms. The "Cheerful Cherub" is 
the surest antidote we have; her smile acts like an antitoxin 
even against that germiest of germs, "blue-card blues."

Edith was one of 1919's two members who did their bit on 
the Simmons farm. It would amaze you to know what her- 
culean strength lies in her arms, for, it is said, the farmers 
used to leave their plowing to gaze on her as she manipulated 
the pitchfork. Clandestine visits to cinema houses, however,

"Besides, 'tis known he could speak French 
As naturally as pigs squeak." — Butler. 
Peg is fully qualified to write, if she would, upon the "Hor- 
rors of War, As Seen At Close Range." Like many other ben- 
evolent maidens possessing attractive stationery and French 
dictionaries, she adopted a "godson" in the front-line trenches. 
If he had stayed in the trenches instead of ringing the Bellevue 
House doorbell, Peg might have missed the thrill of trying out 
a limited French vocabulary upon a Frenchman equally in doubt 
as to the English language. It is international complications 
such as this that have puzzled statesmen — Peg's inexhaustible 
good nature and sense of humor proved equal to that difficulty 
as to all others she has encountered in a Sec. Course.

Of a person with hidden potentialities for becoming the class 
tennis champion we expect and demand little else. But when 
we find a fascinating blonde equipped with mental powers that 
carry her over the heights in that Gathering of Genius, History

Dorene Thompson 


For those who are not among the Glee Club elect, Dorene's 
nickname is "Do-Re-Mi." She has ever been a staunch mem- 
ber of 1919 — parties and class meetings have been attended as 
faithfully as if some pecuniary — or culinary — reward were 
forthcoming. She possesses, in addition, an honest desire to 
look ever beautiful, a healthy appetite, and like Sancho Panza, 
a blessing for the man who first invented sleep. But she re- 
ceived a "UK" for Xmas, and now third floor North heartily 
agrees with the immortal words of Irvin Cobb, "A ukelele on 
the wall is worth two in the hand!"

Here is another little B. S. chaser. Dorothy may have a 
silver tongue but in all the four years we have known her 
she has concealed it in a golden silence. She is 1919's woman 
of mystery, a veritable sphinx. The person who said that 
woman was a creature born to talk surely never knew our

Vulgarly known as "Towel," a species of nomenclature which 
she professes to dislike extremely. The proverbial feminine 
aversion to mice has she, raised to the nth degree. And once 
— just as if in reel life — Adventure disturbed the peaceful 
channels of her life.

"It is as though you had touched a loyal hand, looked 
into brave eyes,- and made a noble friend." 
We run a very great danger of becoming sentimental about 
Kate. She's so "just-about-right." But she's not at all a 
paragon — that's the best part about her! Maybe she has weak- 
nesses, but she has two characteristics that so much over- 
balance them as to make them negligible. First, she is an 
ardent believer in the maxim that for all right judgments of 
any person, it is essential to see his good qualities before pro- 
nouncing on his bad. Second, she has a nature that prompted 
the remark, "Well, thank goodness, Y.W.'s got a president 
who can do something besides pray!" That is, while she is 
profoundly convinced that the spiritual side of life is the 
highest, yet she has that "social" sympathy which makes her 
understand that "everything's something, and all is God."

"But love is blind and lovers cannot see 
The pretty follies that themselves commit" 

Consider, then, our Most Thrilled ! Florence has managed 
to extract more thrills from each separate year at Simmons 
than most of us have been able to acquire in all four. From 
farmeretting to flunk-cards, she has run the gamut of all the 
emotional possibilities that Simmons can offer, and never once 
has the temperature of her excitement registered less than 90 3 
Fahrenheit. Now, in Senior Year, she has apparently reached 
the culminating point; the Biggest Thrill is hers! When the 
Government has time to send discharges to Radio Students who 
are in durance vile, Florence will transfer her rapt attention 
to matrimony. 1919's best wishes will go with her.

forget it, with shrieks of "Hence, loathed Melancholy." But 
here is the pathetic side: in the melee of abandoned thoughts, 
abandoned and forgotten, we see, too, abandoned fountain-pens, 
forgotten but not rejected! Did I say two? Rather let me say

Tell Emma that the Dean has given us permission to dance

she will be galvanized into an immediate clean-up campaign. 
"Conscientious and consistent cleanliness" has been Emma's un-

the human hand over the "dust that lies, and does not rise, 
but lies and lies."

With the establishment of the Simmons College Review, the scope of 
the Microcosm necessarily changes slightly from what it previously has 
been. Therefore, it has seemed best this year to try the experiment of 
gathering together in a sort of reminiscence the "high lights" of the four 
years that the Class of iqiq has spent at Simmons, instead of merely 
commenting on all the customary and traditional events of one year. This 
system has at least the quality of fairness, for it leaves to each class the 
opportunity to describe its own life in whatever way it chooses. 

The Editor acknowledges with gratitude the helpful suggestions and 
criticisms of Miss Charlotte F. Babcock of the English Department. She 
also desires to thank Mary Klein, 1919, for her excellent work in making 
many of the "cuts." To all the members of the Board she extends her grate- 
ful appreciation of their conscientious and cooperative work, which made 
possible the publication of the Microcosm. Particular credit is due Esther 
Keliher and Belle Schonfeld, to whose faithful work throughout the whole 
year no words can do justice.

IN May 1 91 8 there came into the life of the College a new institution. 
This was an honorary society established for the purpose of recognizing 
excellence in scholarship, and it was named "The Academy." 

In a college primarily vocational, gradually the need and the desire 
for something academic, something totally apart from specialized training, 
had made itself felt. This society was the embodiment and the expression of 
that need and desire. 

The purpose of this society is to encourage interest in those courses of 
study which are of a liberal character, as distinct from the courses which 
are of a technical or professional nature; and to recognize accomplishment 
in those studies. 

"For if the vocational is that by which in the end Simmons stands or 
falls, it is none the less true that the Simmons ideal has ever been to 
liberalize rather than to mechanize, to focus rather than to narrow, to 
educate as well as to train, to look toward making a life as well as toward 
making a living. The various professional schools, however, naturally and 
properly, tend to inculcate specialties and to divide the student body verti- 
cally. The Academy tends to unite a section having a common bond of 
humane taste or aptitude, horizontally. Interests which have hitherto had 
no special sponsorship outside that which exists directly between teacher 
and pupil, the new society will further recognize, foster, and make fruitful." 

Membership in the Academy is open to all, graduates and undergradu- 
ates, whose grades have reached the standard established by the society. 
This standard is the attainment of fifty percent A points, of or twenty-five 
percent A points and ninety percent A and B points, in all the courses taken 
in academic departments. Membership may not, however, be attained 
earlier than the end of the first term of the Junior year. 

By virtue of its quality, the influence of the Academy cannot spread 
broadcast immediately; but already, in the one short year of its existence, 
it has made a distinct impression not only on the student body, but on many 
persons not directly connected with the college. In coming years, and es- 
pecially when the first period of experimentation is passed, we look to the 
Academy for the representation and the expression of the highest and the 
best in College.

Aim: To promote the spirit of mutual helpfulness, service, and self- 
government among the students and to strengthen their loyalty and sense of 
responsibility toward our College. 

This year completes the fourth year of the Student Government Asso- 
ciation so arranged as to include every girl in college. 

The officers for the year, elected from the members of the Council, 
were : 

President, Carita B. Hunter. Secretary, Helen Stacey. 

Vice-President, Ruth Stevens. Treasurer, Helen Blanchard. 

Simmons College was one of the colleges who, on account of the war, 
voted not to hold the annual conference of the Intercollegiate Student 
Government Association ; and instead, used the money which would thus 
have been expended, in war work. 

During the first semester, the Association devoted most of its time and 
thought to War Work. It organized and maintained a Volunteer Service 
Bureau for War Work, which was a branch of the Volunteer Service 
Bureau of the Metropolitan Chapter of the American Red Cross. Over 
two hundred girls were registered and demands were filled daily for various 
branches of trained war work. 

The Association organized a Committee for the sale of War Savings 

In cooperation with the faculty, a campaign for the United War 
Drive was conducted, and pledges amounting to nearly $7,000 were 

The Simmons Red Cross Auxiliary was formed this year and carried 
on regular work in knitting, sewing, and surgical dressings, besides conduct- 
ing a Membership Campaign during which over two hundred girls joined. 

Aside from war activities, the Association has interested itself in putting 
the Honor System on a workng basis, has effected necessarv changes in 
the point system and has fostered the establishment of an Employment 
Bureau, besides creating several new standing committees, including the 
Poster Committee, and the Student Government File Committee.

DORMITORY GOVERNMENT, as well as all other organizations, 
was affected by the enforced vacation in September. The Council 
was just organized and the girls were getting into the swing of the 
new year. Everything had to be begun all over again later. The splen- 
did way in which the girls have cooperated with and supported the organi- 
zation is even better this year than ever before, in spite of all drawbacks. 

An important change has been the appointment, by Council, of the 
proctors for a longer period of time. It is hoped that this will do away with 
the frequent upsetting changes, and likewise will make the proctors feel their 
responsibility more, since they are responsible to the Council directly. 

The Freshman House Seniors were chosen again this year. It is felt 
that these girls are a very important feature, as they are the link between 
the old and the new girls. 

Our regular parties were held, much later than usual, of course, but 
with great success. 

We look forward hopefully to the continuation of the wonderful spirit 
of support the girls have shown.

The Civic League, formerly the Social and Civic Club, was entirely re- 
organized in the spring of 19 18, and this year has shown the value of that 
reorganization. The purpose of the Club has been to bring to Simmons 
well-known men and women to speak on interesting subjects of the day. The 
policy of the Club has been to get persons with different points of view, 
especially on economic and political questions. 

Great success has been achieved, and we have been most fortunate in 
having the best informed people speak to us on their specialty. Among the 
speakers have been Captain Morize of the French High Mission; Dr. 
George Nasmyth; Professor Gilmer of Tufts College; Arthur Gleason: 
John Robert Nichols; Lieutenant Vincent de Wierzbicki of the French 
High Mission; John Hermann Loud, organist at the Park Street Church; 
Professor Lewis Jerome Johnson of Harvard and Technology. Harry 
Holmes, Madame Catherine Breshkovskaya, and Charles Zeublin. 

It is hoped that the Civic League will continue to hold the interest 
of the students as much as it has this year, and that that interest will mani- 
fest itself by large attendance at the meetings.

IN June, 19 1 8, plans for the consolidation of The Quarterly and Persim- 
mons were adopted by the Alumnae Association and the Student Govern- 
ment Association. The Simmons College Review is the result of that 

There are eight numbers of the magazine, which is published monthly 
during the college year. News and literary matter contributed by or of 
interest to the College Administration, the Alumnae, and the Students are 
printed in the Review. Each of the three bodies mentioned is rep- 
resented on the Board of Editors which is responsible as a whole for the 
policy of the magazine. 

The Review is supported by the College corporation, the Alumnae 
Association, the Student Government Association, and by paid advertise- 

It was in the hope of bringing about a closer relationship among all 
the parts of the college — alumnae, students, and administration — that this 
magazine was brought into existence; and it is with this purpose in view 
that the work has been carried on.

Up to this year, the legislation which existed in regard to the Honor 
Board was very slight, most of the rules being "understood." The Student 
Government Council, however, felt that this was not satisfactory and con- 
sequently drew up a new constitution, modeled to a large extent on the 
previously existing rules which had been partly written and partly unwritten. 
This constitution was accepted by the student body. 

Careful, accurate records of all cases in the future are to be kept, and 
to aid in this, a stenographic secretary is to be appointed for the Board each 
year. A system of publicity is to be worked out, and it is hoped that this 
will supplement the work of the Committee. 

Certain cases of dishonesty which were reported were dealt with by 
the Committee, reported to the Student Government Council, and thence to 
the Faculty. In all cases the Faculty accepted the ruling of the Council as 

The work of the Board this year was constructive, and it is hoped 
that a foundation with some degree of permanence and stability has been

The Endowment Fund Committee, consisting of three members from 
each class, was organized six years ago for the purpose of arousing interest 
in a new Student Endowment Fund. At this time, the college graduates 
gave a play, turning over to this Committee the proceeds,- — the beginnings 
of this new Fund. This small initial sum has been gradually increased 
through the strenuous efforts of the Committee aided by the hearty co- 
operation and support of the entire student body. A year ago, with the 
purchase of a Liberty Bond, the Student Building Fund was established. 
Believing that this Fund and the Endowment Fund overlapped, the com- 
mittee decided to unite them last June to form the new Student Building 
Endowment Fund. Owing to the conditions of the present day, it has been 
impossible to increase it to any great extent this year. The Fund was 
materially increased by the contribution of a $50 Liberty Bond frorn the 
members of the class of 1922, living at Mrs. Hadcock's. The Committee 
is already planning for a drive during the coming months by which they 
hope to add several hundred dollars to the Fund. With the enthusiastic 
support of every student for a very few years, it now seems as if the Stu- 
dent Building would be a reality in the near future.

UR year began its life in a very real way at the Silver Bay Conference in June. 
It was there that the Cabinet drew up its program for the coming year, and 
was stimulated into the enthusiasm which has brought us whatever good 
results we may have realized this year. The 1918-1919 aim has been to make the 
Y.W.C.A. in its biggest terms, known, understood, and valued accordingly. We have 
put particular attention on the weekly meetings — both as to speakers and music, and 
the usual large attendance has proved their popularity. 

Owing to the epidemic our first meeting was a month late, but we were repaid 
for waiting by having the Rev. Brewer Eddy address an audience that overcrowded 
Library B. He launched the discussional groups in a way that enlisted nearly every 
dormitory girl and a fair number of day students. The speakers that followed, 
up to the Christmas meeting with Major Ian Hay Beith, brought to us the spiritual 
challenge from overseas; and the meetings afterwards consisted in the main of two 
courses: Christian Fundamentals in War Times, and Modern Social Problems. The 
joint meeting with the Menorah Society was an outward expression of the broader 
sympathies this eventful year has given to the Association. 

We have started two customs which it is hoped may in time become college 
traditions. One is a short morning service directly after breakfast in the Halls 
and at Peterborough House; the other a half-hour musical program in South Hall 
after Sunday dinner. 

Of course back of all this is the great international aim of all student Y.M.C.A.'s 
— "to deepen the Christ life among the students." How far we have succeeded in this 
can only be answered by the individual girl. We are optimistic enough to believe, 
however, that this year may be a firm and sure stepping-stone to a greater success 
in the ensuing years.

THAT the Menorah Society is growing steadily in importance to Sim- 
mons students is shown by the fact that this year the membership is 
larger than in either of its preceding years. The Menorah is en- 
deavoring in a broad way to spread the memorable facts of Jewish history 
and literature, and to arouse an interest in the present and future welfare 
of the Jewish race. This it accomplishes through a Menorah library, 
available to all Simmons students, of some fifty authoritative and interest- 
ing volumes on all phases of Judaism; through prominent speakers who 
come to address the society at its monthly meetings; and through study 
circle groups which meet twice a month under the direction of a competent 

The first gathering was in the form of a Menorah tea, when the new 
members were informally welcomed into the society- Music and dancing 
helped make the hour enjoyable. 

On November 19 a meeting was held jointly with the Y.W. C. A. in 
the Students' Room. Dr. Eichler was the principal speaker. The meet- 
ing was well attended. It is hoped that similar joint meetings will be held 
in the future. Some well-known speaker will be present at the meeting each 

To all who are interested in the work of the Menorah an invitation to 
attend all the meetings is cordially extended.

THE progress of the Christian Science Society of Simmons College has 
been greater during 1918-1919 than at any time since its organization. 
A reception was held early in the year to which all those interested 
in Christian Science were invited, and new members were accepted. In 
November, a lecture was delivered at the College by Mr. John C. Lathrop 
C.S.B., a member of the Board of Lectureship of the First Church of 
Christ, Scientist, in Boston. The Literature Distribution Committee has 
placed subscriptions to the Christian Science Monitor in the Library and 
Students' Room and also in North and South Halls. The meetings of the 
Society are held on Friday afternoon in the Students' Room.

DURING the winter of 191 7-1 8 Simmons was not behind with her bit 
toward the winning of the War. We had Liberty Loan Drives and 
a Red Cross membership drive, and a branch of the Surgical Dressings 
Committee was formed which flourished both at the dormitories and during 
several hours a week at the College Building. But on the day of Student 
Government Party, when Dean Arnold came back from Washington to 
visit us, she told us of a new organization which had been formed to con- 
solidate all our war activities under one head. This was to be known as 
the Simmons College Union for War Service. 

The Union was proposed and organized in the early spring at a meet- 
ing of the Executive Board of the Alumnae Association and some of the 
College Faculty. Its prime object was to keep a record of the work of 
all the Alumnae, Faculty, and students who were engaged in any kind of war 
activity. Later its function was expanded to giving financial help to the 
organizations and individual workers connected with Simmons. Mrs. Kent 
and Miss Noyes of the Corporation, and Mrs. Lefavour of the Council were 
appointed to the Committee in charge, which also included representatives 
from the various College groups. The organization has been financed by 
membership pledges and donations. 

The first project that the Union carried out was the Simmons Farm 
Unit, at Center Harbor, New Hampshire, which was organized by Miss 
Gilbert. A number of girls spent most of the summer on the farm, and 
made the Union's first constructive effort a genuine and practical success. 

When College began in the fall a new department was begun with the 
aid of Dr. Babcock. This was the Volunteer Service Bureau. All the 
girls were asked to submit programmes showing at what hours they would 
be free for emergency war work. We maintain a regular branch of the 
main Volunteer Service Bureau of the Boston Metropolitan Chapter of the 
Red Cross, and when called upon can send girls out to do typewriting, 
clerical work, or any other service of that kind. In connection with this, 
the Red Cross refugee sewing during week-days has been divided up among 
the girls who have registered with the Bureau. 

The Simmons Auxiliary of the Red Cross has been brought under the 
Union, which has promised financial support. 




It has also been possible for the Union to send money to Dr. Under- 
wood in Italy for his work in the Y.M.C.A. among the refugees. 

Although with the end of 'the war the necessity for such an organi- 
zation might no longer be apparent, yet it continues to nourish, for war work 
is by no means at an end. Our responsibility here at Simmons is only 
just beginning. It is to be hoped that the Union may be able to "carry on" 
with reconstruction work, and perhaps become a permanent center for com- 
munity service at College.

Which means that Simmons, not to be outdone by her sister colleges, reverted to the 
simple life and tried her hand at the spade and hoe. 

Our college Farm Unit, which was organized in June, 1918, was made up of 
twelve girls and two chaperons, who dedicated themselves for two long summer 
months to the patriotic, if somewhat blistering, art of tilling the soil. They lived 
in an old-fashioned farmhouse, about a half mile from Lake Winnepesaukee. The 
simplicity of farm life was a decided change of routine for some of the girls, but they 
soon became accustomed to living on a "farm" schedule, and liked it, even the "early 
to bed and early to rise" part of it. After scrambling out of bed in the cool New 
Hampshire mornings, and jolting along over the country roads in the spring-and- 
cushionless Ford truck for many miles, they soon found that they could get used to 
anything. Trucks and "reveille" and all, they spent a memorable summer up there 
in New Hampshire, and the thought that they were doing their bit for their country 
and their college, was balm enough for any blisters!

"Who can make buttonholes?" That was our battle-cry in the 
Fall. Scarcely had the Red Cross got started when the "flusies" appeared 
in our midst and we were bundled off home, — and then the War ended, 
and the joyful order, "No more surgical dressings" was issued from Wash- 
ington. So we turned our skill upon the manufacture of pajamas! For 
some of us, no imaginable form of sewing machine can ever hold any fears 
after what we have been through. Nobody could have believed that the 
simple pajama was such a riddle. But the girls worked nobly (although 
some of the coats would button from right to left — as they ought to ! — in- 
stead of in the extraordinary military way), and it was fine training for our 
later consignments of refugee garments, which were simple by comparison. 

The Red Cross drafted the day girls for work in the College Building 
during certain hours a week, using the catalogue of the War Service Bureau, 
and had three meetings a week in the evening at North Hall. 

We feel that the Red Cross has accomplished a good deal, not only 
because of the actual work we have done, but because it has given us a 
greater sense of world citizenship, and of our present obligation as Ameri- 
cans toward Europe.

Chairman af Dramatic Committee, Marie O'Connor 

Everybody ought to belong to the Dramatic Club, and nearly every- 
body does, for it holds something for all of us. This year the effort of the 
Club was to encourage these interests : 

1. The giving of plays. 

2. The attending of plays. 

3. The reading and criticising of plays. 

4. The social life of the Club. 

Monthly meetings were held. At some of these, well-known persons 
spoke on different phases of the drama, and at others, criticisms were 
read of the plays which we had given. Teas were held to arouse a social 
interest in the Club, and they were very successful. 

Sally Page, president in 19 17-18, sent us Barrie's war plays to start 
a real Dramatic Club library which shall be for the use of all the members 
of the Club. 

The Club so far is without a real name. Any organization as dis- 
tinctive as this ought to have a name for itself, but as yet we have not 
found one. An urgent appeal is made to all to submit some title, so that 
the Club will not have to go through life simply as "a" Dramatic Club, 
but that it may be known as a distinct, and — may we hope — distinguished 

Our first long play, "Mrs. Bumpstead-Leigh," was given in the 
spring of 191 8 and was our biggest success. We plan to continue the 
policy of giving two short plays in the fall, and one long one in the spring, 
and then possibly, too, short plays in midwinter.

May 3 and 4, 19 18. 

"Mrs. Bumpstead-Leigh" was, in a certain sense, a new departure 
for the Dramatic Club. It was the first three-act play that had been 
presented by the Club, and it demanded a far more elaborate setting than 
previous plays. Not only that, but the very nature of the play was different; 
it was a light comedy of the modern school, requiring the most skillful 
of acting and most careful interpretation of character to "get across" the 
spirit. Whatever the demands, the Club met them all; even the usual 
number of masculine parts, which is ordinarily a drawback, failed to make 
the play any less successful. Of course the central figure was Mrs. Bump- 
stead-Leigh herself; Margaret Daniels, '19 made of her a very real and 
fascinating person, with sudden changes from suave aristocracy to domi- 
neering commonness. Those who saw the play will remember the moment 
when she turned and upbraided her vacillating sister and mother for "spill- 
ing the beans." Margaret Tobin, as the self-effacing mother, who was al- 
ways being sent out of the room to prevent her making some betraying re- 
mark, did one of the finest bits of acting that has ever been done in the Club. 
Helen McCulloch, '18 was the charming younger sister Violet, and Helen 
Grauert, '19 put all the pertness and demureness necessary into the role 
of Nina, the flirtatious maid. The masculine roles were equally well 
played; Helen O'Neil, '20 made as debonair and supercilious a villain 
as one could desire, with Edith Dunn in contrast as the "good" brother 
Geoffrey. Blanche Castleman, '19 ranted realistically as the angry father 
of Geoffrey and Anthony, and Helen Jacobs, '18 made the most correct 
and sedate of butlers, ever indulging in clever bits of non-complimentary 
repartee with the maid. And of course there was the loud-voiced Peter 
Swallow, who turned the tables on the scheming Mrs. Bumpstead-Leigh by 
his artless reminiscences. The setting of the play displayed the ingenuity 
of the "props" committee; to give the effect of a summer home on Long 
Island, in the limited space of stage that was available was a veritable

At the Refectory, Saturday, December 14, 1918. 

THERE are those supercilious and phlegmatic and over-humorous 
individuals to whom "dramatics" are as naught; that type of feminity 

regarding the ceaseless efforts of weeks in the light of cheerful in- 
difference. There was, of course, the horrible combination of cold fried 
egg, chunks of bread, an over-turned coffee-pot filled with water into which 
the person of the Southern Sergeant made abrupt descent on the night of 
the dress rehearsal. This little incident was accompanied by the fact that 
the shot-gun had failed to arrive, and that Mary was unfortunately obliged 
to shoot the Southern gentleman with a broom, the Southern gentleman's 
defensive being previously ruined by the use of knives borrowed from the 
Refectory tables in lieu of revolvers. 

But these, after all, are affairs chiefly of interest to the harassed "prop" 
committee, and to the heroic cast whose number was sadly broken into by 
the demands of the "flu." Yet the first night came at last. Miss Hale, 
magnificent in a heavy moustache and wig, was unbelievably convincing 
as the brutal sergeant, while Mary struggled with her repressed emotion 
with a composure for which great credit is due ; her interpretation of the 
role was remarkable considering her short period of preparation. Thad- 
deus, smoking placidly, gave a rare demonstration of the fact that a 
girl can really look like a man. Dick was charming to observe!

Even more of a success was "The Crimson Cocoanut," in which M. 
E. Daniels as Robert achieved another of her characters with an im- 
pression of rare humor and reality. Ruth Sanborn's "Jack Pincher" was 
most gallant, despite the curious behavior of the false nose and the extreme 
tightness of the trousers. The Gliserinskis deserve much praise for their 
handling of difficult melodrama and for their costuming. Grauie was 
lovely to behold, and her irate parent's faces behind the sofa, in combina- 
tion with the angle of his hat, were truly amusing. 

Thus the little tale of Simmons dramatics grows, and with it the 
promise of even higher achievement. Past history proves it already a varied 
and a worthy one.

Because of the shortened year, Hockey became the main interest this 
fall. The successful season was due in large measure to Miss Diall as 
coach, and Delia Watson as manager. 

Tennis and hiking will be continued in the spring, and we will try to 
make up for time lost on account of the epidemic in the fall. 

Basketball has been splendidly supported, each class having good 
squads to work with at practice.

The Musical Association is composed of the Glee Club, Choir, Mando- 
lin Club, and Orchestra. The Glee Club has worked this year under the 
direction of Mrs. Mabel Bingham Howd. 

Weekly Assemblies have been held in Library B, and for a short inter- 
val at the opening of each meeting Mrs. Howd has led in community singing, 
assisted by the Choir. 

Each of the Clubs has practised once a week, and as Concert time drew 
near, there were rehearsals at more frequent intervals. On February 28 
and March 1, the annual concert was given, and another concert was given 
to the Seniors in June. 

This year we voted to take a definite stand for better music at our 
dances in February, so that a high standard of music should be maintained 
not only during the concerts but throughout the entire evening.

Just as dignity is a most essential quality for Seniors, just so is it a most 
disappointing attribute in Freshmen. But despite the veneer of sophistica- 
tion that we may have acquired in the succeeding years, in our Freshman 
year we were truly "young"; and at the Freshman Frolic we not only 
dressed, but we played and gamboled and sang and shrieked, in the most 
approved "youngster" style.

"Three score and seven weeks go, this college wel- 
comed to its bosom a new class, composed of geniuses and 
dedicated to the proposition that no one was created 
equal to them. Now we are proceeding through a mighty 
Sophomore year, to prove that this class, or any class, so 
constituted and so dedicated must long endure. We are 
met on a great festival day of that year. We have come 
together to have the best time of our college career. 
Let us make this day one that succeeding classes will care- 
fully note and long remember, 

I pledge you — 1919!" 

Standing, we drank the toast with hearts full of excitement and glasses full 
of water. And then we just set out to have a good time. Since it was a 
luncheon, we must have had something to eat, of course, but that's not 
the thing we remember. Oh, no, what will stay in our minds in years to 
come is the "accessories," so to speak. Those jokes that Margaret E. 
Daniels, who was the Toastmistress, sprang in rapid fire succession, and 
those speeches from the representatives of the different schools, and the ad- 
dress of Miss Arnold, and our songs, and, Great Caesar! yes, the gymnastic 
feats of Dot McKissick as she led them, and the cunning but terror-stricken 
Freshmen who waited on table, and the biggest event of the day, the speech 
of our president, Carita Hunter. Don't they all come back in an onrush of 
memory? And then, after the formal part was over, can anyone ever 
forget the entertainment, or, that crowning touch, Eleanor O'Brien's im- 
personation of Mr. Collester? 

It was "one of the best times of our college career," wasn't it? 

"Soph'more days are just the best 
Soph'more days beat all the rest, 
They're the days that we'll hate to leave behind 
The days that we'll ever keep in mind, 
So here's to our good old Soph'more days."

THERE are some events that leave an impression on the mind like the 
impression of a French heel on a hot asphalt walk. The Sophomore- 
Senior Carnival, given in the spring of the year when 19 17 was the 
Senior Class and we were Sophomores, was an event of that sort. 1917 
talked about it for days afterward; 19 19 talks about it to this day. It has a 
decided innovation. Instead of the usual Sophomore-Senior Luncheon, at 
which the two classes made futile efforts to eat and be sociable at one and 
the same time, an evening carnival was held at the Dorms. There is some- 
thing about the very word "carnival" that starts a party off with a sparkle; 
the decorations of huge red-white-and-blue balloons, the pretty gowns and 
the paper hats that everyone wore at a rakish angle, helped the carnival 
spirit along. 

In the matter of entertainment, Dorothy McKissick had hit upon a 
striking novelty. In the center of the Refectory there was seated an old- 
fashioned singing school, exactly like the pictures that old people smile over 
and young people giggle over, in the Family Fotograf Album. There 
were several gentlemen in the school, a Quaker, some periwigged Colonial 
dandies, and a rustic soul, in overalls and rubber boots. 

They sang all the old, old songs — "Seeing Nelly Home," "Cousin Jede- 
diah," and other familiar favorites that have somehow lost their popularity, 
but not their beauty, under the strain of competition with syncopation. Dot 
McKissick was the leader ; she was a stately Colonial Dame to perfection, 
except when, in the stress of emotion she reverted to type, and gave the 
familiar jerk of the left foot that all '19 knows so well. There were solos 
by the gifted members of the singing school, and a stately minuet, and then 
as the grand finale the whole school arose and danced — shades of the fox- 
trot, how they danced ! — the Portland Fancy and the Virginia Reel. There 
is a certain portion of the Refectory floor which will ever hold mirthful 
memories for 1919. To have seen Blanche Castleman performing double 
shuffles and cutting pigeon wings, under the double disadvantage of loss of 
breath and a tight Colonial coat and vest, was a sight impossible to des- 
cribe in plain, unvarnished language. The hysterical shrieks from the au- 
dience as the dance grew swifter, and the double shuffles more complicated, 
were a tribute to her performance. 

And then, after the old-fashioned element, we had a bit of modernity 
to remind us that it was 19 17 and that rag-time rhythm was prevalent. 
Miss Keliher and her Trained Seals performed; the Seals being five Sopho- 
mores who leaned gracefully over the top of an upright piano and burst 
into close, one might almost say, "clinging" harmony. They sang a Senior 
Grind and a mournful ballad, "Simmons Blues." After that — ices and 
cake ; and after that, dancing. Everyone, Sophs and Seniors, stayed over 
at the Dorms for the night, and when the last light was out, the last balloon 
was captured as a souvenir, there wasn't a soul under the Dorm roof who had 
seen the fun who didn't wish it was starting all over again. If you had 
seen Blanche, you would hardly blame them ! 






MAY DAY, 1 9 1 7 

ONE morning in the year do we cast aside all thoughts of typewriters 
and catalogs and hydrometers : this is May morn. We hark back to 
days of olde England when maids arose and bathed in dew, that their 
beauty might survive the ravages of time. 

And so we, as Sophomores, followed the traditions of the college and 
celebrated the beauty and charm of our sister class, Nineteen Seventeen, on 
May morn. By song we hailed them, and in their honor we danced about 
the May-pole. Then we crowned their president, Eleanore Keith, as queen, 
and all the Sophomores paid homage at her court. Each Sophomore, as she 
advanced to curtesy before the May-queen, was given a red rose — a token 
of appreciation from the Seniors. 

And then did our maidens in filmy dancing garb dash for warm coats 
and hot coffee; for, without warning, on that May morn, had appeared 
the Wild West Wind, and as we later sang : 

"Cheesecloth's not much protection 
When there's a breeze!" 



A w 


SOME one remarked, once upon a time, that Necessity was the mother 
of invention. That phrase was coined, however, long before the 
building of Simmons College and the coming of the Class of 19 19. 
If there is going to be any family relationship claimed with the child In- 
vention, 191 9 feels a right to a branch of the family tree. Especially after 
the Liberty Loan Party, which it held in aid of the First Liberty Loan, in 
the fall of 191 7, when rivalry was keen between the four classes to see 
who could raise the largest amount of money for the College bond. It was 
in that exciting week when the Seniors peddled sandwiches and hot dogs 
in the corridors and the Sophomores blacked boots innumerable, and the 
Farwell Jitney plied its way to and from the Dorms. 1919's contribution 
to the cause was not a matter of deliberation. It evolved from a sudden 
bright idea, and it developed in the space of twenty-four hours. It was 
held in South Hall, and if you had a dime and a sense of curiosity, that 
evening, you were entitled to about five inches of floor space and a close-up 
view of a most remarkable performance. 

It began with a Liberty Loan monologue by Mary Coburn. Then 
came the Knitting Song, presenting the different phases of the knitting 
craze. There was the Grandmother, who knitted long before her grand- 
daughters began to invest in khaki-colored wool; there was the typical Sim- 
mons girl, the click of whose needles drowned out the clack of the instructor's 
tongue during lectures ; and there was the Baby, a truly precocious child, 
who knitted speedily in its perambulator, and never dropped a stitch ; But 
the hit of this part of the show was the duet sung by Al O'Connor and K. 
Hall in masculine attire, Al in a jaunty black-and-white checked suit and 
Buster Brown collar, and K. in Palm Beach tennis clothes. They knitted 
demurely on pink and pale-blue sweaters, and lisped, 

"If the men who were not fit 
For a rough, howwid twench would knit, 
Why soon we'd see big brother 
Giving knitting points to mother, 
As they're sitting, with their knitting, 
In the good old-fashioned way." 

After this came the main feature of the show, the nucleus of the whole 
affair — the Song Auction. Marion Fitch was the coy and persuasive Auc- 
tioneeress, who lured the dollars from the audience with the same ease and 
rapidity that a magician draws rabbits out of a silk hat. She offered for 
auction certain mysterious songs about the Celebrities of the College; in the 
background stood a group of trained ( ?) singers, all ready to sing the songs, 
when the bidding reached a point sufficiently high to warrant their vocal

efforts. It was doubtful which was the highest, the bidding or the excite- 
ment! The same young ladies who shouted vociferously for songs about 
their friends, and bid half-dollars with abandon, relapsed into modest and 
blushing silence when their own songs were bid for. 

As for the songs themselves, perpetrated mainly by Esther Keliher, 
they were apparently successful, judging by the uproar of applause that 
followed each one, but they certainly bore traces of having been hastily 
"tacked together" in a frenzied hour of composition. However, the verses 
sold well. Not only that evening did they win money for 1919; when the 
printed copies went on sale at the College the next morning, the Hall 
Table resembled a busy Saturday afternoon at Remick's. When the receipts 
from the performance and the sale of copies were counted, it was found 
that 19 19 had added about sixty dollars to its contribution. Verily, Neces- 
sity may be the mother of Invention, but 1 9 1 9 is a first cousin to it! 


ON Sunday afternoon, February 17, 191 8, the Alumnae were enter- 
tained by the Juniors in the Recfectory. The precedent had been 
established that year of holding a conference in Boston of Simmons 
Alumnae and the Sunday gathering was the final event of the Conference. 
After a short welcoming speech made by Priscilla Buntin, the Vice-President 
of the Junior Class, President Lefavour addressed the gathering. He 
then introduced the other speakers — Mrs. Brown, the President of the 
Alumnae Association, and various Simmons Graduates, who told of the 
many kinds of interesting work which they were doing. After the speeches 
were finished, everyone was invited to meet Mrs. Lefavour in North Hall, 
after which the graduate classes held separate meetings.

THIS was the maiden primeval ; desperate product of wartimes, 
Searching the highways and byways, seeking a man for a partner, 
Asking no marvellous creature wearing the collar named Arrow ; nay — 
More than content with a stripling, if but he trip well the fantastic. 
Eager her search — yet unfruitful, thwarted by merciless draft laws. 
Seniors, half warning, half jealous, vainly attempt to dissuade her, 
Speak, like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic : 
"Desist; experience bitter has taught us — naught will you get but mere 

Else grandfathers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms." 
Loud in denial she protests. Thus challenged she casts around wildly; 
The flag of distress she hoists, publicly begging assistance. 

This is the maiden primeval, but where is the cave-man protector? 

Hark, 'tis an answer comes ringing, echoing over the river. 

Radio students gallantly revive the old chivalrous legends, 

Place themselves at her disposal; for what, they stop not to consider. 

From Choctaw and wilds of Umzumbi, innocent quite of the mazes 

And intricate science of dancing, to Harvard they've come ; 

Ready they are at the summons; "prepared" be it war or society. 

Yet not without rivals they come. Semaphore students all eager 

And yearning to show off their training, wigwag in frantic acceptance. 

Technology, Devens, and Bumkin all rally in marvellous numbers, 

Foreseeing a "treat for the Soldiers" — food in abundance they picture 

From Simmons, the home of gastronomy. Sad disillusion awaits them, 

For, true to the spirit of wartimes, the goddess Conserva's decree is 

Nothing to have but essentials. Music there was, and free water, 

And palms for a background for matrons. These, be it known, are "essen- 

Naught but tradition was present of Prom spreads that once were so lavish. 

Thus was the maiden primeval. The next morn her triumph proclaiming 
She upholds her class reputation; '19 has achieved the impossible! 
A dance she has given — on nothing — expenseless (with minor exceptions; 
These, by the way, were the music, and palms that must needs be for 

matrons. ) 
In time she subsides to the normal ; routine again rules all her actions. 
But deep in the mem'ry of one maid, the haunting remembrance persists, 
And painfully now, as she limpeth, she thinks of the evening of joy, and the 
Thousands of weary feet that never completed their journey ! 
Yet buoyantly now she describes it, for passing time dimmeth perspective.

This was a Spontaneous Outburst 
Of Junior Hospitality 
In Three Bursts, 
Excitement, Entertainment 
And Eats. 

The Excitement was Elemental 
But to be Expected. 
Take a Crowd of Juvenile Juniors 
And Scintillating Seniors 
Start them from the Dorms 
With the Vague Idea 
That by the Aid of Heaven 
And the Park St. Subway 
They are to be 

Somewhere around Rowes Wharf 
Somewhere around Nine O'Clock 
And when they do get there 
The Result will be a Noise 
Like unto a Band 
Of Blithesome Bolshevik! 
Sharpening their Axes 
In Preparation for a Busy Day 
At the Tsar's ! 

The Only Incident 
That made a Noticeable Dent 
In the Wild Uproar of Girlish Glee 
Was the Moment when Miss Diall 
The Creaseless Chaperon 
Arrived Aristocratically at the Wharf 
Languidly leaning on the Cushions 
Of an Antediluvian Taxi; 
And Descending Debonairly 
Paid the Menial 
Without Batting an Eyelash 
At the Tempestuous Taxi-meter. 
At the Sight of which Royal Recklessness 
We, the Subway Sisters, 
Relapsed into a Coma 
From which we did not Emerge 
Until the Boat was almost down 
The Harbor ! 



The Entertainment 
Was strictly on the Cafeteria Plan, 
That is to say 
You went and got the Kind 
You wanted. 

The Athletic Ones seized Balls and Bats, 
The Thoughtful Souls sat upon the Sands 
And Meditated, 

And a few Untrammelled Ones, 
Hearing the Call of the Wild Waves, 
Sought out a Boarding-house Lady, 
With an Eye, 
Nay, let us say Two Eyes, 
For Business, 

Who for a Large Sum 
Rented them Bathing-suits 
For Brief Swims. 
The Brevity unfortunately 
Extended also to the Suits. 

In the Afternoon 

There were Divers Diversions 

In that Paradise of Pleasure, 

Paragon Park. 

We Roller-coasted Rollickingly 

Or had Terrible Tintypes taken 

Or rode upon the Merry-go-round 

Seated sublimely upon Tigers 

While a Pitiful Pipe-organ 

Ground out that Beautiful Ballad 

"In the Good Old Summer Time." 









And then there were 

The Eats. 

They were Excellent 

If you Like your Food 

Flavored with Tons of Sand. 

You stood in Line with Paper Plate 

And got all that K. Rock 

Gave you 

And maybe More 

When she wasn't Looking. 


And then you went and Sat 

In a Chummy Circle 

And were very Sociable 

At the same Time keeping Count 

Of how many more Bananas 

Your Neighbor had secured 

Than you had. 

And in the Intervals you bought 

Popcorn and Peanuts 

And Picklelimes and Soda 

And Candy and Crackers 

And then you found that Somehow 

You were not Hungry 

Any More ! 

The Juvenile Juniors 
And the Scintillating Seniors 
Reached home that Night 
Less Jaunty but still Jovial, 
Which only goes to prove 

As the Bingville Bugle would say 
A Good Time was had 
By All!

"For the Love of Mic" 
November 13, 19 19 

"For the Love o' Mic" — what? everybody asked everybody else 
when the tickets bearing merely that cryptic announcement went on sale at 
the College. No one seemed to know whether they were to be admitted 
to a stereopticon lecture on "The Life and Habits of the Esquimaux," or 
were to be given another opportunity to discover one more bump on the 
Refectory floor while dancing. Even when the evening of the 13th arrived, 
and they were safely inside and seated, the prevailing sense of bewilder- 
ment only deepened at the sight of three upright pianos, ranged side by 
side, upon one of which a harassed tuner was putting the last hammer-like 
touches? Why three pianos? Why the tuner? You could hear the 
buzzing whispers run from one row of the audience to another. And 
then as the tuner gathered up his kit and fled from the centre of the stage, 
M. E. Daniels, attired in the most debonair of frock-coats, the most Futur- 
istic of vests, walked out upon the floor, and the audience, hitching chairs 
forward, so as not to lose one detail of what was coming, somehow 
realized that an impossible, an inconceivable thing was about to be per- 
petrated in their midst, in the very Simmons Refectory — a bona fide musical 
comedy ! 

The plot was like the plot of every musical comedy since the original 
one; it was mainly conspicuous by its absence during a greater part of the 
show. The scene was laid in the song-shop of Adam Jazz, Adam being 
M. E. Daniels, '19 of the aforesaid gorgeous raiment. Adam, it developed, 
needed a pianist. The idea was conveyed to the audience by having

Adam render "Smiles" with the forefinger, upon one of the pianos. After 
a few futile sounds, a sign "Wanted — A Pianist" was out in front of the 
shop by Mr. Jazz, and he — as well as everybody in the audience — sat 
back and awaited results. 

Slowly, sinuously, with music-portfolio upon arm, and all the ear- 
marks of genius and eccentricity such as vivid tarn, velvet coat, and bobbed 
hair, there entered the shop Temperamental Tessie, the child of Bohemia 
(Edith Groves, '21). Here, according to her own revelations, was one 
who "felt" her art. Adam obligingly allowed her to "feel" for a few 
moments, but her style of playing was too distinctly reminiscent of Ethel 
Leginska to suit the requirements of a song-shop, so the sign remained 
hanging. And then — brightly, breezily, with earrings dangling, and hat_ at 
an angle at 40° sou'west — into the shop breezed Jessie Jazz, representative 
of ragtime rhythm (Harriette Gordon, '20) whose playing brought smiles 
to Adam's face, and an instinctive desire to shuffle feet, on the part of the 
young ladies in the front row. Jessie was engaged upon the spot, while her 
more temperamental rival sulked in the corner. But still Adam was dissatis- 
fied; the element of "soulfullness," he declared, was lacking. Something 
was missing! Then it entered — the missing link — Esmerelda, the simple 
country maiden ( Esther Keliher, '19), in blue checked gingham and Mary 
Pickford curls (product of West House curling irons), who played angeli- 
cally with many twiddles of base and treble — "I'm Sorry, Dear, I Made 
You Cry." 




With three such remarkable young ladies upon his hands, Adam was 
in rather a quandary as to which one to keep. He finally compromised 
by engaging all three, on condition that they combine their individual 
efforts in the interests of harmony. So they set to work — Tessie, Jessie, 
and Esmerelda — on the three instruments. Do you remember the effect 
of those three pianos bursting out, at one and the same time, upon one 
and the same piece? Just to add to the bewildering effect, Nellie Rabino- 
vitz, '19, as Herself, sauntered, nay hobbled, on the scene, and appropriated 
the only xylophone that the shop boasted of, and Peg Durand, '21, as 
Hungarian Goulash, took competent charge of the snare-drum and traps. 

When those three pianos and the xylophone and the drum and the traps 
all struck the opening bars of the musical score certain emotional ones 
among the audience began to exhibit signs of wanting to climb on their chairs 
from sheer excess of excitement ! 

That, however, was just the bare beginning of a number of delightful 
things. There was the Chorus yet to be reckoned with, twelve organdy- 
clad and picture-hatted maidens, led by Dot McKissick, '19, who entered in 
a tumult of girlish glee, singing tender harmonies and skillfully manipulating 
ukeleles and mandolins. After their entrance, the plot gathered up its 
shattered remnants and departed; no one heeded its demise, for from that

time on, the show was simply one good song after another — "Mid Year 
Blues," "Please, General Pershing!", "Bobbed Hair," and all the rest. 
In the intervals, when the dazed audience was recovering from the effects 
of the last song and straining its ears for the next, a bit of variation was 
introduced by two dances, an exhibition of modern dancing by Ruth Chapin 
and Madeline Fox, '21, and a patriotic dance "Over There" by Olive 
Taggart, '21. 

In every musical comedy there is that indispensable being, the come- 
dian, who can be relied upon to keep the audience so good-humored 
that they overlook little discrepancies in the plot. The Mic show had its 
lady comedienne, Helen Lynch, '20, who, as Lily Putian the Instrumental- 
ist, burst into the shop like a veritable little bomb-shell of joy, taking the 
audience completely off its feet, and into her whispered confidence. It 
would tax the talents of a "vers libre" artist to describe Lily's apparel; for 
full detail, see picture below. One by one the shrieks of mirth sounded, 
as some new idiosyncracy became visible — the ankle Ingersoll, the sporting- 
jacket of white flannel, the corsage of lettuce, and the girdle of fur. 
Behind her trailed a huge burlap bag, containing her "line," her diminu- 
tive powder-puff, and her victrol-ette, with an accompanying supply 
of Little Wonder records, which she was restrained with difficultv 
from trying over for the kindly audience. Thwarted in her attempts 
to instrumentalize, she danced, first with Adam himself, a coy but 
clumsy fox-trot ending in an exquisite Vernon-Castle sort of pose, and 
then a solo dance, — interpretive art this time, — "The Day of A Simmons 
Girl," beginning with the hesitating morning trot to the college, and end- 
ing with the 4.20 dash for freedom. The audience, reduced to the point of 
abject hysterics, clamored for more, but even a "large crowd with small talk" 
as Lily had announced herself to be, becomes fatigued, so she and her 
burlap bag left the shop in a shower of drooping lettuce-leaves. 

After that, more songs, and the grande finale, the "Mic" song, telling 
each laggard in the audience that 

"You may make all sorts of explanations 
But you never can avoid your fate! 
So you'd better buy a Mic, before it gets too late!" 

The entire cast called for subscriptions from the audience, and many res- 
ponded enthusiastically. Before one name could be written down, out 
from the wings dashed Lily Putian again, and cried in ringing tones, "Let 
the name of Lily Putian be the first to be inscribed!" Not only Lily's 
name should be inscribed upon our records but also the names of all those 
who labored faithfully at 4.20 and Saturday morning rehearsals, to make 



"XS/L ICRO O O & 1 


the performance a success, and who did it all for — "The Love O' Mic." 
Not a small share of the success was due to the cooperation, the helpful 
suggestions of Miss Park, and the ingenious lyrics — the product of Esther 
Keliher's inspired pen.

Presenting the Little Melodrama 




The Relentless Remingtons. 

Dramatic Persons 

M. E. Daniels., Idiot-in-Chief — says little but looks unutterable 
things — wears the look of a haunted spirit — makes fre- 
quent pained inspection of the latest contributions — sighs 
the sigh of a Nazimova. 

E. Keliher., Assistant Idiot — given much to bright but futile 
repartee — teeth always arranged in open formation — re- 
lapses into brief silences only upon unkind shafts from the 
Editor as to her gift of criticism being more destructive 
than constructive. 

E. McConnell, the Busy Business Manager — perpetually 
under a large, black cloud — constant interviews with 
printers and other menials having given her a "I-have- 
lived-and-suffered" look. 

Belle Schonfeld, Advertising Manager — also enveloped in a 
mist, like the Bus. Mgr. — comes out of the haze at inter- 
vals to say cutting things to unfortunate members of her 
Committee who depart town-wards wearing their best 
hats and complacent smiles and return, bearing one miser- 
able $5.00 ad. 

Occasionally — other members of the Bored, forming a 

Greek chorus of lamentation. 

Scene: A room in the College. 

Time: After 4.20 and before 7.00 p.m. No sound in the build- 
ing but the soothing swish of the sweepers. 

M. E. Daniels (seated at the desk and surveying her loyal band with cool, 
calm and critical eye) : "Well — have any of you done anything since 
the last meeting? I don't know what some of you are on the Board 
for, except to fill up space in the picture !" 

(Wounded silence from, the loyal band. Enter — Miss Keliher, 
with cheerful but empty countenance, humming "I'm Sorry, 
Dear, I Made You Cry." Exclamation of pain from Miss 
McConnell — representing the interests of the Glee Club.) 

Miss K. : "Good evening, girls!" (Scrupulously polite, as ever in Library 
Methods class. Arranges herself artistically upon two chairs and pro- 
ceeds to perform a prelude upon a bar of Hershey's Milk Chocolate.) 


v i:.....;f 'FT 



M. E. {with air of "lion couchant") : "Do you happen to have concealed 
upon your estimable person any of those write-ups you were going to 
produce before this meeting?" 

Miss K. (plaintively, through a maze of chocolate) : "Now, how can I be 
expected to write up a lot of people that I only see in classes — can't get 
an insight into their characters — their subtle points — er — and all 

M. E. (unsympathetically) : "A little less of the soul-searchings and a little 
more emphasis on some hard facts wouldn't be a bad idea. How about 
the ninety-seven girls that we haven't any write-ups for yet? Think 
they're getting Mic for the exquisite pleasure of seeing a blank space 
under their picture?? — Heh? (hyena-like snarl!). 

Miss K. (taking her mind, and her teeth, of the chocolate, for the time 
being) : "I've got an idea ! Why not put them in one column and head 
it 'Ninety-seven Sweet Girls — God love 'em.' " 

(Loud and enthusiastic applause from the rest of the Board. 
The Editor utters a striken groan.) 

Belle S. (in her favorite role of Cassandra the Crape-hanger) : "Write 
ups — always write-ups ! Why don't you people pay attention to the 
essential element of your publication, the basis upon which the intricate 
worth of our effort is centralized — the advertisements?" 

Miss K. (admiringly, to the world at large) : "Say, isn't education a won- 
derful thing?" 

Belle S. (refusing to be diverted) : "And what the girls must do is to 
support our efforts — to patronize the firms who are kind enough to 
respond to our solicitations, and give us ads. Patronize the firms who 
patronize us — that should be their aim!" 

Miss K. (Now performing an obligato, fortissimo, on the Hers/icy' s) : 
"That's right, Belle, that's right! I always spend my money where 
it's appreciated. Simmons firms for Simmons girls — that's my motto !" 

M. E. (brutally) : "You never spent enough on any firm to pay them for 
the cost of mailing the ad to us. Now why not be sensible and rational 
for a few hours?" 

Miss K. (dejectedly) : "There's the sordid commercial instinct for you! 
If I ever get my degree I'm going to take a course of lectures in 
'Wild Flowers — How They Grow' — to counteract the effect of Busi- 
ness Methods 2. Look what it's done to M. E. !" 

Miss McCoNNELL (heatedly) : "Just come with me to the printers and en- 
gravers a few times, and I'll give you a course of lectures on "The 
Mie — How It Doesn't Grow!" (Note: this speech is not in Edith's 





usual vein; she has summered with the other Secretarial Seniors on the 
Fenway, and the kindly edges of her disposition have been warped in 
the process.) 

(Dull darkness settles down upon the Fenway. The College is 
silent as a tomb. The Board grows restive, hearing in 
fond fancy the "Call of the Wild" — the dinner bell at the 

M. E. (famished, but firm) : This meeting was called for the purpose of 
producing some contribution towards the book. No such contribution 
has been forthcoming. You will remain here until such contribution 
has been — er — contributed!" (This with the coldbloodedness of a 
Simon Legree and a voice like the lash of his whip!) 

( Utter and despondent and hopeless silence ensues. A few 

smothered sighs — Shuffling of feet — Nothing happens.) 
(Finally — out of the darkness, a light! Miss K. draws from 
her pocket a folded paper.) 

MlSS K. (blushing modestly) : "Well, if you really want something in the 
line of write-ups, I've — er — written myself up. That ought to help 

M. E. (cryptically) : "Yes, it will!" 

The Board (unanimously, seeing relief in sight) : " Read it! Read it!" 
MlSS K. (laying aside the chocolate, out of reach o\f the rest of the Board, 
with her usual prudence, and beginning to read) : 

"Esther is a bright laughing girl. She has made many fast 
friends since she came to us. Many happy hours has she helped 
us pass by rendering music in the gymnasium. She is very refined. 

She is a true friend " 

(One by one the Board departs. The Editor alone sits on — > 
paralyzed withlfatigue — gazing hopelessly into a future com- 
posed chiefly of irate printers, elusive subscriptions, and 
MlSS K. (putting aside the manuscript and returning to the remnants of the 
chocolate) : "Honestly, M. E., do you think the Mic will ever be 
M. E. (out of the depths) : "It may be completed but it will never be 

The Assistant-Idiot takes herself of the two chairs and departs. 
The Editor remains motionless — thinking the thoughts of 
martyred Belgium — after a while, she too, goes into the 
night. Nothing is heard in the College but the rustle of 
the rats.

'Twas just after "fluzy," as I've heard the tale, 

And Bellevue invaded by scrub brush and pail. 

We in the Infirmary up in North Hall 

Thought climbing the stairs was beginning to pall. 

And Anne with her notebook, and I with my pen 
Were ready to start for a class, — but just then 

The telephone rang. We replied in a hurry. 
Miss Goodrich was talking and seemed in a flurry. 
"You girls must move from the Infirmary, vite; 
We have to move in there some sick girls from Pete!' 


We both dropped our books. And before I could catch her 

Anne hurried to East House and brought up the stretcher. 
We started right in, and as quick as a wink 
We filled up that stretcher before you could think. 

Down four flights of stairs, to our house, then up one; 

We groaned as we thought of the task just begun. 
We dumped out the first load and then we went back 
And piled up more clothing a second to pack, 

When up on the stairs there arose such a clatter 
We ran from our work to see what was the matter. 
However, we found we need not be afraid; 

'Twas only three girls who had come to our aid. 

So working together we hustled things out, 

(And lucky it was that the stretcher was stout!) 

1 ' I — I F"* 


And now six scrub women did enter the fray. 
We had all we could do to keep out of their way. 
From fifth floor to first floor, to Bellevue and back, 
We knew not before that we owned such a stack. 

The last load was ready. We came up the stairs, 
(Who says she likes moving can not know its cares!) 
The things on the stretcher began then to slide, 
Books, shoes, and clean clothes all fell over the side, 
And down the back stairs, getting dirty and battered, 
The whole precious bundle just tumbled and clattered. 
We picked them all up with so little ambition 
That we put them away in that awful condition ! 
Loose sheets from a notebook hobnobbing with jam, 
And ink and shoe-blacking in somebody's "tarn." 

We dumped them on chairs, on the floor, on the bed, 
And thought of the toils of the morrow with dread. 

There was such a great mix-up that, though we might seek, 
We knew we couldn't get straightened out in a week. 

So we jumped into bed, leaving everything there. 

We were really too tired and sleepy to care. 

And I heard someone murmur, when all were tucked tight, 

"Talk about liking 'movies' ! Well, / say, good night!"

THE Secretarial Faculty are sometimes full of play 
They're always doing things to take the joy in life away 
One coy little invention 
Is really worth the mention 
It shows the lengths to which they let their sense of humour stray ! 

Each Secretarial Junior got a little schedule card 

And was told to pause each day and think — this part was really hard ! 

Of the hours she had shirked 

And the hours she had worked 

Making careful note of when she went "off duty" and "on guard." 

Now the scheme was very simple and the thought behind it kind, 

They just wanted to impress upon each childish Junior mind 

That the Secretarial Powers 

Keep a watch on Junior Hours 

From the time the Juniors breakfast to the minute they have dined. 

Yet no one but a Junior knows just how a Junior feels 

When forced to tell each minute spent in travel and on meals 

And to make exact notation 

Of her hours of recreation 

Why, a schedule card like this her very inmost soul reveals ! 

"Young ladies," Dr. Eldridge said, with smile serene and bland, 

"There are certain revelations that, of course, I don't demand. 

I don't want to hear your tales 

About intimate details, 

You can class such items under Meals, and I will understand!" 

Ah, unsuspecting man, he little knew the girlish glee 

With which the canny Juniors heard his innocent decree. 

Gone was inward trepidation 

Gone the wild-eyed indignation 

They all knew the loophole of escape that list called "Meals" would be.

r — ■ 




Now when Juniors spend an evening with the charming sterner sex, 

Does the problem of the schedule card arise, to fret and vex? 

Never — for without a doubt, 

They have found the one way out! 

When swains can camouflage as "Meals," what is there to perplex? 

And when the Doctor gathers all the Junior schedules in 

He'll think the Juniors' battle-cry is "Eat and you'll grow thin!" 

That a starving Belgian horde 

At the Dormitories board. 

And while he sits and puzzles — Juniors wear a subtle grin ! 

Moral: The Montessori system has its drawbacks!

By One Who Knows 

INSIDE these Simmons Walls, oh idly? did we stray, 
Us kids at Summer School — awasting here away? 
Then, "Draw the ponderous bars and pay the Bursar stern!" 
Thus spake Miss Grimshaw loud — we saw the hinges turn. 

"We kids are foully tricked," I whispered in a daze, 
In midst of those accounts that showed more E's than A's; 
(While hot July did scorch us in a most alarming way, 
And while we hammered Remingtons for hours every day. ) 

For Joy became a dream — and Hope a timid Friend, 
While Croix de Guerreless we saw our miserable end 
Confined to this rude area — the Dorms, the Dump and School, 
To faster, faster shorthand — they worked us somethin' crool ! 

The Captives each took turns; before machines quite wild 

Were heard those agonizing cries, "O my Cheild!" 

And at the Phonograph — it was so sweet and clear 

One could not hear a line — just grasp a faint, "My dear — " 

Then came the Oliver — each Captive pressed her brow, 
"I have been sad," she said, "but I am suffering now." 
"Oh, surely they will treat us all most right and kind 
We've given up so much to live this life of grind." 



A K~* 




Hoarse laughed our Captors then — "Shall we be known to care ? 
Dost think, poor foolish wretches, that we will treat you fair? 
But better still — we'll all discourage you with scorn 
Until all joy in life and light and love has gone!" 

But still about our lips there played a smile serene, 

"Dear friends," we gently said, "We'll love 'what-might-have-been' 

When we give in 'twill be because we've gone so far 

That Human Scorn is nil — out there "Across the Bar." 

Then comes the end, and calm descends upon each soul ; 
The struggle of distress — the home-stretch and the goal, 
A mad desire for word-signs — also postage rates, 
While Memory now escapes and Thought fore'er abates. 

We ceased to work and all exhausted turned to go — 

There was no further power could ever work us woe ; 

No grievous heat, no lessons long, no human means 

Could touch us more — these true-to-life J. Ruskin "Queens!" 

Their knowledge, wondrous wise, their scintillating charm, 
That self-control, that conquering smile so calm 
Had come from "Dooty which they seen and done" 
And made those prisoners free although they had no Gun.

Wake ! for the bell, which scattered into flight 
The golden dreams of one more five-hour night, 
Drives us from slumber, and with hideous scream 
Calls our tired eyes to day's unwelcome light. 

The locker-door to which I find no key ; 
Problems galore through which I cannot see, 
Some little talk awhile 'twixt me and thee, 
A "Sh!" — and then no more 'twixt thee and me. 

Some for the glories of this world, and some 
Sigh for the far-off month of June to come ; 
Ah, take a chance, and let the credit go 
Nor heed the warning of a flunk card glum! 

I sometimes think the sky is ne'er so blue 
As when I have some History I to do ; 
The tennnis-court has ne'er so fair appeared 
As when some threatened quiz demands review. 

Fear not lest Graduation closing your 
Account, and mine, should know the like no more ; 
The Eternal Faculty, from that goal, has poured 
Hundreds of bubbles like us, and will pour. 

We College Girls are but a moving row 
Of mystic shadow-shapes that come and go ; 
Floored by unanswerable questions blandly put 
By the benign professor of the course. 

But helpless pieces are we which he plays 
Upon this chequer-board of D's and A's; 
Swiftly and deftly moves, recites and slays, 
And one by one among the failures lays. 



Your mind no question makes of ayes and noes; 
In sweet forgetfulness your way you go ; 
But he that pulled you down in all your marks, 
He knows about it all — he knows, he knows ! 

His moving finger writes; and, having writ, 
Moves on; nor all your pleading nor your wit 
Shall lure him back to change a single grade, 
Nor all your tears wash out a word of it.

There are so many kinds of Simmons girls. 
Which kind are you? 

There are the Studious Ones. 

They are eternally haunting Library B 

And sitting 

With their noses deep in gigantic volumes 

As though 

They were inhaling their knowledge. 

They are the girls 

Who write placidly during exams 

While others sit 

And mop their fevered brows 

And chew their pencils. 

They come to classes with the air 

Of those 

Whose minds are completely at rest. 

When called upon by the unsuspecting instructor 

They astound the poor man 

By bursting 

Into an impassioned oration. 

(Are you one of them?) 

There are the Athletic Ones. 

They wear 

(When the weather and Corridor Laws permit) 

Gym suits and an air of strenuousness. 

They look with scorn upon their weaker sisters 

Who prefer to sit 

Snugly indoors 

Rather than get their shins whacked 

In the howling mob 

Out on the Hockey Field. 

They are always coming to class 

Sans breath and sans hairpins. 

(Are you one of them?)

Then there are the Responsible Ones. 

They are so painfully efficient. 

They are always being elected 

To Committees-on-Something-or-Other 

Simply because 

They have such executive natures. 

They rush about the corridors feverishly 

With a "Am-I-my-Sister's-Keeper?" look. 

They are forever seizing upon inoffensive Freshmen 

And getting them to join something. 

I wonder 

How the College is ever going to jog along 

When they depart? 

(Are you one of them?) 

And of course 

There are the Irresponsible Ones. 

They are charming. 

They have such a delightful disregard 

Of minor trifles 

Such as classes and schedules. 

They are always exceedingly dressy 

Either in their own or their room-mate's best clothes. 

They bring 

Into the dull routine of college life 

A refreshing essence 

Of Roger et Gallet perfume and afternoon teas. 

If there is anything ponderous 

Upon their young minds 

They are entirely successful 

In concealing the fact. 

The only trouble is 

They do not remain with us long. 

It seems a pity! 

(Are you one of them?) 



£ K^m JPCA 

The Catalogue would be incomplete 

Without the Unknowns 

The submerged Tenth ! 

We know they are here 

Because the Registrar seems to have 

Seen them once 

But no one has seen them since. 

They are either excessively exclusive 

Or in a permanent Coma. 

They never do anything noticeable 

Or say anything audible 

And they never go out for anything 

Unless it is the Air. 

Every Class has them 

Although it may not be aware until Commencement 

That it possesses this Quota 

Of startled Fawns. 

(Are you one of them?) 

There are so many kinds of Simmons girls. 
Which kind are you? 



m i o :r,o g o s i vi 



{With profound apologies to Kipling) 

When the last, last "write-up" is written, and our pen points twisted and 

When the photo-prints are faded, and the proof-sheets laid aside, 

We shall rest, and faith, we shall need it — lie down for a month or two, 

With the blissful thought that the Book's in print, and there's nothing more 
to do. 

And only the Class shall praise us, and only the Class shall blame, 

When we've gathered in their money — shall we gather any fame ? 

But a joy there's been in the working, and sometimes a sly "Ha-Ha," 

For we've drawn the Thing as we've seen it, have written the Things as 
They Are ! 



Of course we all knew how this was going to come 
out, and it did. Dot McKissick's the one we all like best. 
The rest we like in pairs, Carita Hunter and M. E. 
Gordon just beating out Helen Grauert and Florence 


We had this event just for Vera's benefit. Miss 
Mersereau received so many votes that V. de Milo 
blushed for shame. We suspect a connection ; their in- 
itials are the same. Ruth Stevens' natural marcel 
brought her in for favorable comment. Bunny Max- 
well, Anne Stolzenbach and Beatrice Emery also figured 
in the beautv contest. 


A Daniel, yea, a Daniels is come to judgment! The 
laurel wreath in the Pallas Athena contest goes to the 
President of the Acadeirry. Marion Smith's cerebral 
matter is the envy and despair oi many of her less gifted 
companions. Those who know her appreciate the real 
scholarship of Christine Brown. Rebecca Cohen is also 
a shining member in the constellation of brightness. A 
few of us remembered that Telley Wolff by nature is 
very close to the bright lights. 



Most of the class thought versatile meant some new 
fashion of penmanship but weren't sure, so didn't vote. 
Those wlho took the trouble to consult their dictionaries 
(the Secretarials keeping at a safe and discreet distance 
from this source of temptation) remembered that M. E. 
Daniels has tried her hand at just about everything. 
Marion Fitch's ability to put anything together from a 
song to an automobile brought her deserved recognition. 
Mary Klein upheld the honor of the Science Department 
in the race, and Dot McKissick's antics as song leader 
were enough in themselves to bring her in fourth. 


"None but herself can be her parallel." No wonder 
we like her. All hail to Mildred Gordon! Some of 
the class thought this meant "best at being everywhere 
at once" and so presented the wreath of (poison) ivy 
to our noble editor-in-chief, Miss Daniels. "K. Tyler's 
a great kid" was one classic remark, and was the sub- 
stance of many votes. Marion Fitch's skill in managing 
the Secretarial faculty, along with all her other accom- 
plishments, brought her fourth place. 


Surrounded by a halo of Famous and Celebrated Per- 
sons, we see shining resplendent Miss Gertrude Barish. 
Certainly a girl who can come to a foreign country and 
complete a college course within the prescribed time in 
full standing with her class, and at the same time, add as 
much to the life of college "activities" as any other girl 
in the class, shows promise of accomplishing something 
worth while. 

Of course we all know that M. E. Daniels makes more, 
and keeps fewer, promises than anyone else in the College 
— the class seemed to think she'd go on promising the rest 
of her life. Belle Schonfeld and Christine Brown bid 
fair to accomplish big things. 



A brief survey of the expurgated portion of the "hu- 
mor" of the Mic would bring to light hideous revela- 
tions regarding our esteemed contemporary, Miss Esther 
Keeler. "A man (or a maid) who would make so vile 
a pun would not hesitate to pick a pocket." K. Rock 
was so close a second in the race to be funny that she was 
almost first. Ede MacConnell and Holmsey working 
together could extract a laugh from the Great Stone 
Face. Somebody heard the harrowed Editor say some- 
thing witty once, but that was long years ago. 


Only three people figured in this race. M. E. Gordon 
had it won before half the votes were counted. Honor- 
able mention goes to Mary Klein. Delia Watson somer- 
saulted into third place. 


The thoroughbred, who plays the game and abides by 
the rules, in everything she does — M. E. Gordon. Second 
floor South know that Hap Fowler and Fitchie are game 
for almost anything. Someone, possessing an unsuspected 
bump of perspicacity, decided that Miss Diall was not 
lacking in sporting blood. 


Emma Williamson hasn't varied a hairsbreadth from 
the hard and fast rules for four years, so of course she's 
first. Eunice Clark corralled no small number of the 
votes. B. Puntin's passion for public confessions of her 
horrible misdemeanors brought her all the other votes. 



A single dormitory "wardrobe" wouldn't suffice this 
year to hold Ernie Rowe's multiplex raiment — she glories 
in a whole closet, besides a couple of drawers in her room- 
mate's dresser, so there's little wonder the class voted 
for her. Vivian Moore's attire is warranted to compel 
a second look. And our infallible barometer of styles is 
Nellie Rabinovitz. 


From her perfect marcel to her spick and span spats, 
there's not a wrinkle or a spot on Ernestine Rowe. The 
neatness of Emma Williamson's room would survive a 
morning inspection in barracks, and Frances Tourtelotte 
has long been the model for third floor North. 


Carita Hunter bore away the prize in this event. M. 
E. Daniels is capable of a few more things than some of 
us suspect. Marion Fitch fitted in for third, and Dot 
McKissick upheld the dignity of the blondes by getting 


As the procession came marching along, Priscilla Bun- 
tin was seen in the lead. Our Council Presidents, 
Jeanne Butterworth and Carita Hunter command equal 
respect — to the fraction of a vote. Kate Tyler is an- 
other to whom admiration is accorded. 

• ^ 




Mary Nelson Sawyer, long-distance, bantam-weight, 
inexhaustible, champion hot-air artist made her debut 
here. It was a walkaway or rather a talkaway. Ede 
MacConnell, however, has never challenged Mary, so 
the title may be in dispute. Carita Hunter doesn't let 
her voice rust from lack of use, and M. Fitch and A. 
Hauser are guaranteed to "keep the ball rolling." Ruth 
Sanborn talks an awful lot, but no one pays any atten- 
tion to her. 

KiSKR* ?m * 


Carita, whose "tongue dropt manna, and could make 
the worse appear the better reason," though she talks 
much, persuades much. Florence Crowell and Dot 
McKissick have learned from managing the class that 
their utterances must be strictly guarded. Catherine 
Tyler takes care not to rub you the wrong way. 


Jeanne Butterworth stood up so straight that we 
weren't quite sure whether she was a student or an in- 
structor. Priscilla Buntin (purposely) wore a high 
collar the week we voted and consequently got second. 
K. Tyler completed the monopoly of six-footers by cap- 
turing third. 



There were only five people in the class who didn't get 
at least one vote in this event — among them our Editor, 
who no longer makes the slightest pretention to good 
nature. Curious, so many got one vote ... to be sure, 
it might be that they . . . but of course they didn't. 
Anyway, they were good natured enough to admit that 
Hap Fowler was the best natured. Marion Shute is so 
good natured that it's demoralizing to live with her. 
And Marion Alcott, who has sold more tickets, books, 
etc., etc., at the hall table than all the rest of the College 
put together, comes in for mention right here. 


You won't believe it, but A. B. C, etc., Douthit won 
this without exerting herself. Marion Fitch gets away 
with a lot that's never even questioned. Esther Keliher 
is the most overworked bluffer in the class. Jessie Zirn- 
giebel keeps them all guessing, and Ruth Sanborn fools 
more than her instructors. 


Florence Weinberg.

Yet once before we go, we cast aside the mask and pause to say fare- 

Four years we have spent: years of some joy, of some sadness; years 
of dreams, and of growing wisdom; years of high hopes, of a few regrets. 

Toward the future we turn our thoughts: for what it may bring to 
us we make our prayer; for what we can give to it we make our resolve. 

Each to each we say: 

"My friend, my bonny friend, when we are old, 
And hand in hand go tottering down the hill, 
May we be rich in love's refined gold, 
May love's gold coin be current with us still. 

May what we are be all we might have been, 
And that potential, perfect, O my friend, 
And may there still be many sheafs to glean 
In our love's acre, comrade, till the end."

The name 

Jordan Marsh Company 

Appears on this page of the Microcosm, not because we believe that you 
need to be told where we live, or what we do — for many Simmons 
girls have known us from the days when they pointed out desired 
dollies in our big toy shop, and the others have learned to know New 
England's Greatest Store in discovering Boston — but our name appears 
on this page because we wish to bespeak your Good Will. 

The Good Will of intelligent, progressive young womanhood is our 
finest business asset. 

The urge of this young womanhood is back of the smart simplicity of 
certain frocks, back of party gowns that embody the spirit of their 
youthfulness, back of business clothes that have lost none of their 
femininity in their demure propriety — back of a thousand and one things 
to wear designed and bought to meet the special needs of this young 

The urge of this young womanhood is back of great sections in our 
store that have a part in home economics. The most up-to-date labor 
saving devices, the really wonderful collection of "pots, pans, dishes 
and glass," is but a fulfillment of the demands of carefully trained 
"household engineers" — Furniture, rugs, lamps, and all merchandise 
that goes into home making, is studied through the eyes of these young 
women who are to be the home makers. 

We welcome college women in our great store, not only as friends and 
patrons, but as efficient workers on our staff. They are making good 
in our educational and welfare work, in personnel problems, in secre- 
tarial capacities, in advertising, in selling — they are just beginning 
to realize the opportunities in the merchandising field. 

So it is for Good Will insurance — and to our better acquaintance, that 
we write our name here.

Emerson says: 
"We have ivhat we are entitled to." 

Well, we must be entitled to a lot of Sim- 
mons' trade, for we seem to be getting it. 


Oh, well, perhaps it is the atmosphere in our 
store, an atmosphere of welcome and cordial- 
ity, or perhaps it is the attractive merchandise 
which we display or the prices at which we 
mark goods, which enhance their attractive- 
ness, or maybe it is all these things combined, 
but as the poet sa5's — "This isn't a good year 
for maybes," so why not come in personally 
and see what we have to offer and how nicely

A "Good Anytime" Dessert 

Such a dish of plain Jell-0 as Bobbie and Jack welcome with 
clapping of hands and cries of "Oh, Good-e-e-e !" is good enough for 

But just now, when "substitutes" are still having their day, 
Jell-O, whipped like cream, is one of the most useful and enjoyable 
of all foods. 

What particularly interests college girls is the fact that whipped 
Jell-0 — say in the form of a pineapple Bavarian cream — is a treat, 
and one that any girl can provide. 

The new Jell-0 Book tells how to make all the whipped Jell-0 
dishes and it will be sent to any address. 

Jell-0 is put up in six pure fruit flavors : Strawberry, Raspberry, 
Lemon, Orange, Cherry, Chocolate, and is sold by all grocers, 2 pack- 
ages for 25 cents.
